Chandigarh, Might 31
Amid infighting within the Punjab Congress, shifting the bottom of his political exercise from Amritsar to Patiala by Navjot Singh Sidhu has change into all of the extra related.
Patiala is the house turf of CM Capt Amarinder Singh, who lately challenged Sidhu to show his mettle by contesting in opposition to him from the district. After Sidhu repeatedly attacked the Chief Minister over sacrilege and delay in justice to households of the victims of police firing, the CM had hit again, stating that Sidhu was in talks with the AAP and was damaging the Congress by taking over his authorities.
A senior social gathering chief, Sidhu shifting base to Patiala had political ramifications because it symbolised the cricketer-turned-politician taking over the Chief Minister on the latter’s residence turf and providing himself as a substitute. In any other case, Sidhu has been brazenly questioning the Chief Minister on the unfulfilled ballot guarantees. — TNS
